Since 'developing' proctitis a few months ago I have noticed that every now and then I get sore joints (wrists, knees, elbows) and sometimes very faint aches up and down my legs or arms. It`s not always there and it`s not really a hinderance but it`s obviously something if I notice it.
I feel I`m ever so slightly weaker when it comes to lifting something or moving something too.
Now I understand that some of the medication you can take for UC can cause weakness etc but I`m not taking any medication yet (haven`t been to see the GI yet), so can this disease cause such symptoms?
Maybe because the body is fighting itself (as I vaguely understand happens with UC), then maybe it`s possible to feel generally a bit crap???
Anyone else experience anything like this when in a flare but with no medication??
